So i have had this amp since 2016 and i play it a lot. mostly at home on the 5 watt mode. Today as i turned on my rig and put the amp on from stanby(around 20 min) i start playing and the volume starts fluctuating from loud to soft and back on its own. I investigted some patch cables in my pedal board to see if one was faulty and finally just went direct guitar to amp. The fluctuations kept happening. eventually i turned it off and now am writing this!
Now where i live the mains are at 220 and this amp is a US voltage amp so 110. I run it through a power transformer and its worked fine for the last 4 odd years. Never ever had this problem.
Do you guys think a tube is busted? or something else is the culprit. Guitar pots are fine no problem there. the cable and input are all fine. It has to be the amp. Do i need to change out the tubes, have these ones worn out or do you think its my electricity thats irregular?
I connect the head into 2 different 'cabinets' basically 2 combo amps have that im connecting to the speakers of directly. both are at 8 ohm. again, ive run this setup and play almost everyday and this volume thing has never happened.
Any help is much appreciated!
Can any one suggest what preset and adjustments to get a Tube Screamer sound from my code 50
Thanks in advance
hi everyone, i have a CODE 50 and the biggest complaint i have is finding a preset that allows the amp to be "sensitive" to the controls on my guitars.
you know with any halfway decent tube amp you can ride the volume knob on the guitar to not only turn down (attenuate) the volume but actually change the tone. i know most people use what i call "help me box's" to do this, however, i never use those things. my question is, does anyone know a preset that i can program that will achieve this?
the basic sound would be any Fender or Marshall.
i look forward to anything you all have to say,
I have a Code 50, so I turn to a particular preset and it includes say, flanger. how do I turn off the flanger and maybe add chorus instead. I know that the MOD section can be turned off. If it is on are the inactive effects simply zeroed out or is there a way to enable and disable each different effect. thanks. It looks like this applies to PRE EX, DEL and REV as well.
A second question is can I use the headphone out into either the guitar input or effect return of a second amp, either tube or SS?
